up. and then this promise that president obama laid out if you like your healthcare then you can keep it. he has established it's not a fully accurate promise. will it be established that it's not an accurate promise and in the market? >> it was said that the affordable care act is not a website. but if that is the front door to a big piece of policy doesn't it have to work for people to have confidence for the rest of it? >> they're saying now at least the user inter face for the most part has been fixed. they point to 80%. 80% of people who go through the website can go through the entire process and get coverage. you're right to ask what is success. point of view of success from the administration has changed. they said 7. million by the first year is success. now because of some of the problems you're seeing they're see something success is how well is the risk pool distributed? do you have enough young people to offset the others to make sure that premiums are balanced. bringing in enough young people in the program will really define whether or not the market is stable in 2015 a

to be found when there are major obama care deadlines? do you buy into it at all, david, that he's trying to keep his hands clean or democrats are trying to help him keep his hands clean in case he decides to run for president and now he doesn't want to have anything to do with it even though he called it a good you know what kind of deal when the president signed it? >> is there an element of that? possibly. likely going to china has very little to do with obama care. it has to do with what's come out of the asian corners where president obama made mere platitudes, but no action followed. this is more than we could talk about in an hour. by short. china tests us. they establish their own version of a no fly zone. they test us. our response doesn't match what they're doing. they're being aggressive. they're also insulating their economy. trading more with their asian partners to bring more people into their trading circle. >> biden's good at diplomacy. we always had a good relationship in the senate. julie, back to my original question which is, is he over there to keep his hands clean in

, president obama, should honor his commitment to make sure if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. there seemed to be a little tension at the time. this is how he explained what he said. >> i said nothing about this. not one word until the president, himself, spoke. i don't think you can find anybody in america who's worked harder for his re-election or supported this bill or went out of his way to explain the bill to the american people more than i did. >> get a quick thought from all three of you. paul? >> he's right, right? good point. i actually think president obama should have never made that pledge, but i think president clinton is saying something different saying just what president obama said. >> i think what president clinton is saying is i didn't do anything to hurt president obama. let me make this very clear to you that i only said that after the president said it and so i didn't step on anything the white house was trying to do. >> ryhan? >> i definitely think that president clinton's remarks harmed the white house and i think that's why they s
, if republicans are saying that, well, if you like your plan, you can keep it, and that was a lie the president put forward, if they're saying we need to end obama care, they're going to be taking away health insurance from people who have had it for a while. and that itself can be a powerful counterattack. but interestingly enough, it's not just democratic government who's embracing this, it's a handful of republican governors as well. and i think that that is a really revealing sort of point. governor kasich of ohio said the reason we're doing the medicaid expansion is it's a human issue, it's a moral issue that these people need to be covered. and i feel like those voices are going to begin to get more attention as well. >> so, susan, suzy is not wrong on this point, one of the things that republicans are right about when they have angst about the government, that once it is implemented, it is hard to go take it away. so this point that once people have the obama care, talking about repealing it or taking it back becomes a very different issue than having never implemented it. does that mean
